Knowing the research behind text complexity is critical to understanding the call for more complexity.

The CCSS crafters examined college freshman textbooks and career manuals.These texts typically measure at a Lexile score of 1450.This Lexile measure was used as a benchmark for college and career readiness (CCR).Grade level Lexiles were then scaffolded in reverse, defining grade level Lexile expectations as stated in the Common Core Appendix A.

Flipping Blooms Taxonomy | Powerful Learning Practice | CCRS Research and Resources | Scoop.it

In media studies we often look at the creation of print and digital advertisements. Traditionally, students learn many of the foundational principles for creating a layout through a lecture or text book reading, and then eventually create their own.

What if we started with creativity rather than principles?

Моя практика показывает, что такой путь - верный!

Ulrike Grabe's curator insight, January 10, 2014 3:56 AM

Who ever suggested Bloom's taxonomy as a pyramid that required to master the bottom levels before the top ones?

 

Putting 'creating' first is the logical manifestation of action-oriented teaching.

Suena provocador comenzar por la creación y la creatividad en lugar de comenzar con la memorización de información.

Five Essential Schoolwide Conditions for Common Core Achievement

Five Essential Schoolwide Conditions for Common Core Achievement | CCRS Research and Resources | Scoop.it

By Mel Riddile, Associate Director of High School Services at the National Association of Secondary Principals (NASSP)

 

Principal leadership matters--perhaps now more than ever before. As much as the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are changing instructional practice in the classroom, we must acknowledge that student learning under CCSS requires a schoolwide transformation that transcends individual classrooms and requires the dedicated, continual attention of the principal. Consider how these five essential schoolwide conditions for CCSS will fundamentally shift the way principals go about leading schools.
